Lyocell fabric, also known as Tencel, is a type of cellulose-based fabric made from wood pulp. It is highly praised for its desirable physical and chemical properties. Firstly, it has excellent moisture absorption and release capabilities, making it a popular choice for activewear and underwear. Its high breathability allows for enhanced comfort and prevents the growth of bacteria. Secondly, lyocell fabric has great strength and durability, making it resistant to tears and wrinkles. It is also known for its softness, smoothness, and hypoallergenic properties, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive skin. Moreover, this fabric is easily dyed, resulting in vibrant and long-lasting colors. Its chemical composition also makes it biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Overall, lyocell fabric has a wide range of applications, including apparel, home textiles, and even medical textiles due to its moisture management properties. It is also commonly blended with other fibers such as cotton and polyester to enhance its properties.
